About time Simon Shaw got in
And I cant beleive they kept in Stephen Jones, even though O`Gara and Hook didnt play that well on tue they were a lot better than jones


Book Reviewer
At altitude and on a flint hard's going to be bloody.
At least they didn't pick Vickery again. Though I would have prefered Martin Williams at 7, as he's got a better rugby brain, with Wallace on the bench as he can cover all 3 back row spots.
Thank God Vickery is out.
He had half an hour too much of Lions Test rugby as it is.
I'd have possibly gone for Hook on the bench instead of O'Gara as he can cover other positions.
I'm in agreement with you T_S on Martin Williams starting as well.

It's going to be interesting.
Sticking up for Stephen Jones here a little. He is not a flash player however he directs the game very well and his little flick passes etc ensure BOD and Roberts get the ball to carry some magic. As long as the pack fires on all cylinders this time, I think its going to be an epic. Scrum will be fine with that front row and Shaw for some grunt. I think AWJ will come on later as an impact player after Shaw has beasted the SA pack up front.Hook missing from the Bench,, urm I think he is a better choice than ROG.
I think we're in with a shout. I don't think the Saffa's took their foot off the pedal in the second half last week. It looked to me like they'd run out of puff. Look at them going in at half time and early in the second half- lots of hands on hips. The altitude might hurt them too.
If we stop giving away stupid penalties I thing we are in for chance. We made the Springbok look good last week and they are there for the taking, and if we do win the 3rd test is going to be a corker
